A crumpled tablecloth and the previous customers' crumbs welcomed us to our table. Disappointed that there was nothing veggie on the menu although a mushroom lasagne was conjured up - sadly swimming in oil and very salty indeed. No sparkling water available. Ordered tomato soup but something green and almost solid was served (still don't know what it was but... More

Sunday lunch and although busy there was enough staff to have been able to provide good service, undercooked veg, the small lunch was tiny! Vegetarian choice was no choice, just lasagne and was asked if we wanted rice with it??!! Dessert came with a small jug of custard which was about a quarter full. Shame as it used to be... More

Stayed in the village for the weekend. Ate here both Friday and Sunday evening. The food came out quickly and was good. Bob went out of his way to ensure we got exactly what we fancied... so friendly and welcoming. I will definitely return !

Great choice of Beers and ales and a wide variety selection of food. I seen some one comment below not vegeterian friendly which is not true as they have a wonderful spinach & Mushroom lasagne and also a Mushroom stroganoff and a few other things to pick from.

Although a friendly atmosphere, if you don't mind people smoking right outside the doors where the fumes are quickly sucked inside, there is no provision for vegetarians!

Whilst staying in the village for a few nights at a local B&B, we took the advice of the B&B landlady and headed to 'The Garthangharad' for some food and drinks. The staff there were really friendly and the food does them credit. On our 1st visit to them there, the restaurant had a party with a couple of quite... More

Can't understand the bad reviews for this establishment, we come here to eat and drink every year on holiday with family and friends and the food, Beer, service and price are always fantastic. always have friendly banter afterwards with the chef and bar staff, such a feel good atmosphere and the locals are always up for a laugh.
